    Battery indicator symbol questions

    I have a Kindle Fire HD 7 and have used it daily since Jan when I purchased it. In all that time, the battery indicator symbols were a white/grey bar that shortens as the battery goes down and green that goes up until fully charged at which time it goes back to white/grey. Today it went went fully white/grey with a lightning symbol in the middle and doesn't change to indicate that it is getting low or charging either one. Why is it doing this and how do I get it back to the way it was? As it is now I have no way of knowing how much battery is left or if it is even charging or not without looking it up.

    I am experiencing the exact same problem today. Can't find any reference to the gray battery indicator with the lightening bolt through it.

    It was an update.
    Go to you options menu and somewhere in there, you will find the box where you should place a checkmark. Now, next to the battery meter, the percentage of battery remaining os displayed. Right now mine says 99%. It is an excellent change.

    OPTIONS, MORE, DEVICE, say YES to displaying battery percentage in the status bar.

    Battery Indicator

    Mine starting doing this today as well. Used to have the green battery as it was charging and then full white when itwas 100% charged. Now I have the lightening bolt as it is charging with the percentage next to it. I was worried the wall adapter I was using ruined the battery. The green battery signal isn't coming back?

    Youll have to ask a fortune teller, my friend.. or maybe an Amazon developer, neither of which are we.

    Does this happen to every kindle-fire or to some. How long does the kindle fire battery last? I have just bought a new kindle-fire and its working perfectly its gives me about 9 hour backup battery power. And every thing is working perfectly Facebook, browser, games all are perfect. I have no comment on kindle -fire till now. But I want to know how Long? Can any one tell me about their kindle-fire history.
